Actually, it is not for 1000 days. It is just that 3 years times 365 days plus June 27 through June 30, 2008 equals 1098 days, and that is way too cumbersome to convert into a blog headline. Futhermore, our release date will not be determined until May or June of 2011. Therefore, 1000 Days sounded just about right, more or less. Having noted all that, we are humbled and thrilled (Pres. Uchtdorf would refer to the feeling as "joyfully overwhelmed") about having this marvelous opportunity to serve in La Mision Mexico Veracruz.

Sometimes is just rains and rains and rains. The ground saturates. The rain can't seep into it. It runs off. The rivers fill up. Upstream waters roll downstream. The banks overflow. The rivers can be pretty, but the results are hard on your furniture. These shots were taken along the Papaloapan River between Ciudad Aleman and Cosamaloapan.

Houses all along the river flooded.

It makes both basketball and soccer tough to play on the schoolgrounds.

And sometimes, the only way you can do your home teaching is by boat. Of course that is what they are doing! These picures were taken on August 31, 2010 after 7 p.m.
